Owen Sound | by Fred Wallace  

Bigras finished with 4 assists to help Owen Sound beat the Erie Otters 5-4.

The Lumley Bayshore was a rockin on Friday night as the Owen Sound Attack beat the Erie Otters 5-4 in an exciting OHL game.

Petrus Palmu's second goal of the game on the power play midway through the third period turned out to be the game winner for Owen Sound, who have won six in a row.

The Attack had a 2-0 lead after the first after Ryan Heeps and Erik Bradford scored on the first five shots of the game, chasing Erie starter Devin Williams from the goal.

Bradford also scored in the second period for Owen Sound, while Attack star blueliner Chris Bigras finished with four assists and was named the game's first star.

Connor McDavid didn't disappoint the fans in Owen Sound as he extended his point streak to a league leading 23 games.

McDavid finished with a goal and an assist to move to 100 points on the season for the Otters (40-14-4)

Alex DeBrincat, Nick Betz and Remi Elie also scored for the Otters, who have now lost two straight head to head against Owen Sound (29-19-9).

Owen Sound netminder Jack Flinn is on a personal five game win streak, making 34 saves for the victory.

Daniel Dekoning made 23 saves in relief of Williams.

With the win, Owen Sound moves to 67 points on the season -- just three points behind Guelph for fourth place in the Western Conference.

The Storm lost 6-2 to the London Knights on Friday.

The Kitchener Rangers also lost 5-1 to North Bay, and the Rangers are three points behind Owen Sound.

The Attack and the Otters will finish the season series with another game on Saturday at 7:30 PM at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.

It is the second annual Bears in Blue game for the Attack, to help raise money for prostate cancer research for the Canadian Cancer Society.
